I think about what "Demons of the Punjab" or “Rosa” would have been like in the hands of Steven Moffat or Russell T. Davies. The answer is likely that with Davies, they would have been more than a bit cringeworthy and overwrought, and with Moffat they just wouldn’t have happened at all. And they most certainly wouldn’t have been penned by writers who were part of the cultures being portrayed. Co-writer of “Rosa,” Malorie Blackman, and this episode’s writer, Vinay Patel, are the first ever people of color to write for the show in its entire 55-year history.
